two weeks in colorado, president obama's campaign and its allies ran seven television commercials for every five ads run for mitt romney. >>> seems free will is still surviving the 2012 presidential campaign so far. a poll in "usa today" finds that 18% of romney supporters and 24% of those who say they back president obama could still change their mind based on what happens in the debates. >>> and according to pugh research, more than six in ten voters are likely to watch the debate tonight. a majority, 51% to 29% think that president obama will do better than mitt romney. >>> rocker jon bon jovi is busy this week doing performances to support president obama. he has two appearances in iowa on friday. las vegas on saturday and on sunday he's going to perform at an obama fund raiser with stevie wonder and katie peri. this always sells. the web side bat lip reading is choosing paul ryan for its next victim after previous satires of president obama and mitt romney. they reworked a ryan video substituting different bizarre words as only bad lip reading could do. take a listen. >> i we
that obama -- that romney needed going into this, you know, with just a couple weeks away? >> it's very much the narrative he needed, because his campaign was about to be blown away. president obama generally has been running a much better campaign than mitt romney has, but in the last week or so, the mitt romney campaign i think is getting its act together. he had a very, very good debate, obviously. he was more personal on the stump, he was in florida the last few days, he was willing to talk in an emotionally connective way. he gave a foreign policy speech today that was -- had a lot of vagueness in it but was by far and way the best foreign policy speech in my judgment he's made, the most comprehensive on the middle east. he's finding his voice, finding solidity but the polls are really hard to understand right now. not only this pew poll but we had one of the strangest days in polling in gallup i have ever seen. this morning they put out a tracking poll that said the race was tied. this afternoon they put out a second tracking poll saying obama had a five point lead. what can you make o
changed. >> ari, before last week, president obama was showing strong signs of improvement on the economy, closing the gap in most polls. but i want to show you a number. the pew poll shows that 54% of registered voters agree with the phrase doubt that obama knows how to turn the economy around. what do you make of that? >> that's been consistent, and it's been mitt romney's hope. if this is an election about the state of the economy and whether the president is partially or enough to blame for the bad economy, he's going to lose. that's why you see the president has been launching an attack against bain and other things that he was doing. so that's been the weakness and the numbers, too, that i'm looking for on the inside the polls are mitt romney's attributes and his ratings among independents because forget whether the polls are skewed for ds or rs, as long as mitt romney keeps winning independents, chances are mitt romney's going to win. in this pew poll, he won independents today, having nothing to do with whether it's skewed one party or the other. that's something to keep your eye
. but the 2012 version of that theory now is that mitt romney cheated in the debate against president obama this week not by having somebody feed him the answers through an ear piece but rather by bringing the illegal crib sheet on to the debate stage with him. you see, previous debate rules have set out very clearly that, quote, no props, notes, charts, diagrams, or other writings or other tangible things may be brought into the debate by any candidate and yet have a look at this damning evidence. this is at the very beginning of the debate on wednesday night and as you'll be able to see clearly here what is that in your pocket? mr. romney very clearly pulls something from his right pocket and he pops it on to the podium in front of him. violation. violation. according to the conspiracy, complete with the grainy, slow mo youtube videos, this is mr. romney cheating. now he must have been working from note cards the entire debate. the explanation from the romney campaign is mr. romney was not pulling notes out of his pocket. he was pulling out of his pocket a handkerchief. sure enough, a lit
obama on stage next week? >> when you're not that bright, you can't get better prepared. >> that the romney campaign's post-debate message from their national campaign co-chair. the president is lazy and not that bright. here was the obama campaign's post-debate message. >> the mitt romney we all know invested in companies that were called pioneers of outsourcing jobs to other countries. but the guy on stage last night, he said he'd never heard of tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas. never heard of them. and he said, if that's true, he must need a new accountant. so now we know for sure that wasn't the real mitt romney because the real mitt romney is doing just fine with the accountant that he already has. whoever it was that was on stage last night doesn't want to be held accountable for what the real mitt romney's been saying for the last year. >> president obama cannot rewind and unleash that last night at the podium? but the way he and his opponent's campaign have adjusted their tactics in moving on from last night's debate tells you more about where the
points two weeks ago. he has a much wider lead in you consider registered voters. president obama leads romney by 7% in that category. >>> mitt romney's campaign hoping to get a boost from comments vice president joe biden made yesterday. biden warned supporters in north carolina that romney and his running mate paul ryan would raise taxes on the middle class. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class has been buried the last four years. >> of course the middle class has been buried. they're being bear rayed by regulations, by taxes, by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> vice president biden later tried to clarify his comments by saying the middle class was b e buried by policies mitt romney and paul ryan supported. you came watch the debate right here on nbc 4. live team coverage begins at 9:00 tonight. and that brings us to our poll question this morning. will you watch tonight's debate? let us know by taking the poll on the news 4 today facebook page. >>> this morning police are investigating a deadly stabbing. investi
to write their stories already, what do you mean by that? >> they've been cheerleading for barack obama for weeks now and i think they'll continue, but i'm not concerned about that. this will be the opportunity for mitt romney to talk directly to the american people without that filter and tell them about his plan for the next four years, because the american people, the american middle class know that they've been buried for the past four years, to borrow joe biden's phrase. theyave been buried by debt, the higher taxes and know they're going to be buried further. in my state of virginia, small businesses and families will get hit hard by the obama tax increases as well as the defense cuts. that's why we like the plan of mitt romney, which is going to, on day one, allow us to do things like the keystone pipeline, open up that. those are good high-paying jobs, reverse regulations on coal that have cut 1,200 jobs in virginia. also tell the state that -- >> excuse me. i was going to say, you think he's going to lay all of that out tonight in this 9 0-minute debate, all of those points? >>
general assembly week and this particular time we all watched it president obama did come to new york, didn't meet with benjamin netanyahu, talked to him on the phone, refused to allow the prime minister to come to washington even for that meeting. what is your analysis of what happened during general assembly week and what the impact is on us as americans? >> precisely correct. president obama about a week ago came to new york city for the u.n. general assembly. he did meet with world leaders last year decided to meet this year with zero world leaders and jetted off to campaign. he should have met with benjamin netanyahu, he should have met with the president of egypt and talked to him about maintaining security there and keeping americans safe in egypt. the white house response was he has a telephone he can call the leaders. why doesn't he use the telephone to call the view and walked to whoppi goldberg over the phone and take that time and meet with benjamin netanyahu and the president in the middle he's, our embassy is on fire, our president times find for the view but not leaders
lady michelle obama will make another trip to virginia next week to campaign for her husband. she will visit loudoun county on tuesday, october 9th. we'll pass along additional details as they become available. the announcement highlights just how important northern virginia is in the race for the white house. tomorrow president obama will be in fairfax county where he will speak at george mason university. >>> tim kaine opening up the gap in virginia's hotly contested senate race. a new poll by nbc news, "the wall street journal" and maris shows tim kaine leading republican george allen 49% to 44%. that's among likely voters. it breaks a deadlock the two candidates were in just three weeks ago when each received 46% of the support in the same poll. tim kaine's camp believes they are getting some help from the president who has also seen a bump in the state in recent weeks. >>> montgomery county police are on the hunt for the suspect who brutally attacked a man and left him for dead. this 72-year-old man was reportedly on his way to the mega latino market a few blocks away from hi
. president obama about a week ago came to new york city for the u.n. general assembly. he did meet with world leaders last year decided to meet this year with zero world leaders and jetted off to campaign. he should have met with benjamin netanyahu, he should have met with the president of egypt and talked to him about maintaining security there and keeping americans safe in egypt. the white house response was he has a telephone he can call the leaders. why doesn't he use the telephone to call the view and walked to whoppi goldberg over the phone and take that time and meet with benjamin netanyahu and the president in the middle he's, our embassy is on fire, our president times find for the view but not leaders. he has not met with his jobs council since january. he's blown off his jobs council his january. this is dereliction of duty. >> slacker in chief is your summation in the piece. you tell me there is more you'll be writing about. they'll check it out. >> thank you very much. bill: 111 minutes befor 111 minutes before the hour. the first presidential debate goes down in denver tonight.
week when he slipped up and said president obama never raised taxes but will raise them soon. it was mitt romney who said let detroit go bankrupt. then he saw what happened after the automobile loan from the federal government saved 1.5 million american jobs and ohio's economy. and all of a sudden, mitt romney says the auto loan, that was just a good idea. and mitt romney says he will be the president for all americans. don't forget that. even though he was caught on tape saying he can never convince 47% of americans to take responsibility for themselves. this is why mitt romney can't be let off the hook in the debate tomorrow night. but it's hard to press him on these issues when he doesn't even answer the questions. here it is. >> what is the biggest misconception about you in the public debate right now? >> we'll have to create more jobs, have less debt and shrink the size of government. >> misconceptions about you? >> you get to ask the questions you want and i get to give the answers i want. >> i hope there's a moment like that tomorrow night. not going to be easy for ji
's incredible. host: thanks for the call. another early voter. guest: michelle obama was in the state last week in cincinnati on the first-ever early voting with 6800 supporters. she said i want you all to follow the staff across the street to the hamilton county board of elections office and vote now. this is critical for both sides to try to get as many of these votes as possible. on senate bill 5, 61% of ohioans, that means republicans and independents -- excuse me, democrats and independents voted to repeal senate bill 5. 68% of ohioans voted to repeal obamacare. independents are critical. they judged things as best they can. if they want to send a message, they will. but in the same election cycle they are sending a message to president obama and federal health care while also telling john kasich, the republican, but he went too far on collective bargaining. guest: bush won in 2004. obama won with 52% at. no strategist will tell you this will be anything more than 51% or 52%, so ohioans did not believe that recent poll. host: what was wrong? guest: when you poll before independence in ohio
obama leading 49% to 46% among likely voters. again, within the margin of error and closer than it was two weeks ago. on the direction of the country, 40% say we're heading in the right direction. 53% say things are on the wrong track. 40% is the highest mark for this question in 3 1/2 years. there's also growing optimism about the economy. 57% say it's improving. that's the highest number this poll has recorded on this question. one thing not going the president's way here, his handling of the situations in egypt and libya. more people disapprove than approve on that question. as for mr. romney, it appears he's still paying for the comments about the 47%, 51% of respondents to this nbc poll say recent impressions made by the republican candidate make him less favorable. they view him less favorably. 28% say more favorably. >>> both presidential candidates were off the trail as they prepared for tonight's debate. the president spent the past couple of days working with his team in nevada. took a quick break to visit the hoover dam. why not while you're there. mitt romney was in
for president obama after this week's tough debate performance. but the honeymoon only lasted five minutes before a tweet by former g.e. ceo jack welch sparked accusations of a conspiracy theory. joining me is former dse communications director and msnbc political analyst and publisher of mullings.com. >> it is a big improvement. is there a down side if the president and his advisers appear too relieved or the fact that it's under 8, that's a win? >> yeah. i think the president and the white house actually did a good job of -- they have all along making the point that let's keep this in context. it's good news because it's moving in the right direction. the other thing about the 7.8 number that i think is the most important is that number and the number of jobs created was in addition to about 418,000 more people actually re-entering the job market. so point being in the past sometimes we've had some good numbers because in part some people weren't looking for work anymore. so i think that's actually -- so there are a number of positives. but i think the president has been very realistic a
is townhall and obama really shines in that format. >> stephanie: my favorite post of rude this week is entitled simply "paul ryan is a little bitch." >> isn't that wonderful edsy. [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: you wrote paul ryan appeared on fox, quote, unquote, news ryan was there because at in point in the election cycle, romney's job is to be the little bitch. [ applause ] >> stephanie: he's true. he is a little high pitched already, isn't he? >> he is. and that's what is going to be fun. i hope they release the biden on on thursday night. just tell him, you know what joe, just take this punk down. >> stephanie: yeah. >> that would be beautiful. the delicate work that biden did on sarah palin back in 2008 was beautiful. he was like some kind of master with a razor, and so -- but he doesn't -- then there was the fear of saying something that could be interpreted as sexist or something like that. >> stephanie: right. >> now just punch him in the crotch repeatedly. make him pee blood we'll say rear toicly. >> stephanie: rudeness. thank you, honey. we'll see you after th

week's performance by barack obama, get to change that conversation on thursday, and to really talk specifically about the ryan budget. joe biden told reporters last week that what he's doing is looking at ryan's policies and seeing how he can apply them to the ryan/romney ticket as a whole. what they really would like to do is talk a lot about those ryan fiscal policies. things like kucutting spending, reforming medicare, looking at social security. what biden would like to do is talk a lot about those issues. one issue for the vice president, he hasn't been doing a lot of interviews or interactions with reporters. he hasn't really been questioned on a lot of the claims he makes about the ryan budget on the campaign trail. so it's going to be sort of a new thing for him to be questioned by reporters by the moderator, and by the candidate himself on the claims he's making on how those budget policies would impact everyday americans. >> a lot was said four years ago about joe biden's debate with sarah palin. now, he has known congressman ryan for quite some time. they have dealt toge

, martin, that president obama has woven the hoover dam into some of his speeches in the past several weeks and months to sort of talk about american exceptionalism. he said he had never seen it and he wanted to take this chance to do it. yesterday he actually made a stop, took a break from debate prep to take a stop at one of his campaign headquarters here. again gave him the chance to take a break and shake a few hands and talk to folks in this key swing state. >> kristin, we've learned that the president will get the first question tomorrow night, but do you have any other details about how the debate has been structured, how things are going to proceed? >>. >> reporter: we do have a few more details, martin. we know there are going to be six 15-minute segments. the segments will include three on the economy, one on health care, one on governing, one on the role of government, and here is how it's going to work. moderator jim lehrer will start each segment off by asking a question. he will give each candidate two minutes to answer the question, and then they'll use the remainder of the t
more than barack obama in the last five weeks of the campaign. get over it, yes, you may like barack obama more than me but he hasn't done the job. >> richard says barack obama needs to play it safe. you say, mitt romney, don't play it nice. that's an interesting summation of the debate strategies. i want to talk about vice president biden, a favorite subject for both of you. >> america loves joe biden. >> i love joe biden. he said something on the campaign trail something yesterday and the republicans were quick to pounce. let's listen to what he said. >> this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify, raising attacks on the middle class has been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts? >> and this is how paul ryan responded. >> i thought he was taking my speech. you know what? we agree. the middle class has been buried over the last four years. they're being buried by obama care, by borrowing, taxes, spending, more regulations, all this uncertainty plaguing businesses. the way to fix this is stop th
. as surae chinn reports, mr. obama seemed to be making up for his performance in this week's debate. >> the president was in a comfort zone today at george mason university. >> i don't think a working mom in arlington should have to wait to get a mammogram because money is tight. i don't think a college student in fairfax or charlottesville should have to choose between textbooks or the preventive care that she needs. that's why we pass this law. >> he may joke. >> for all you moms and kids out there, don't worry, somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. >> without his rival, mr. obama took jabs at his opponent's comments about cutting funding to pbs. >> elmo has to watch out, too. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild again, but he's going to bring down the hammer on sesame street. >> and finally, it's what supporters had hoped he would have brought up at the debate, the 47% comment made by romney at a fund raising event missing the portion of americans expected to vote for the president. >> it takes more than one party. it certainly can't happen if you ar
be an interesting week ahead. president obama is in henderson nevada where he's practicing for the next couple of days. both the president and mitt romney's camps are trying to lower expectations so that if someone does particularly well, it will be an apparent surprise. we heard over the weekend that mitt romney is working on some hard-hitting one-liners because he has that well-timed sense of humor thing. here's the president in response to that news. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. governor romney is a good debater. >> not so sure if he's a good zinger. the presidential last debate was back in 2008. he and mitt romney have never gone head to head. romney does need a win to make this a game changer. the match-up will be wednesday night in denver and of course, we know that you'll be tuned in right here to current tv tv for all of our pre and post-debate coverage. 83% of respondents to a new abc news poll said they're interested in the debates as well. so yo
the romney campaign has been running against obama. he rere pepeated the lie to cnn last week. there was a moment back in may when it became a scandal that a pro-mitt romney super pac had even been pitched the idea of bringing jeremiah wright back as an attack on president obama. that ad campaign was never picked up by the pro-romney super pac or the romney campaign itself. it was a scandal they had even been asked to pick up something that racially charged. but a few months later, the campaign picked up the welfare nonsense campaigning in a way that's divorced from the facts but that's loaded with enough sub text to knock you over in a still wind. and they picked up newt gingrich surrogate in his food stamps attack. no and now fox news and the pro-mitt romney drudge report just are going full bore on the jeremiah wright stuff, as o of right now. in 2008 the john mccain had a choice about whether or not they should campaign on really ove overtly racial appeals. things like the jeremiah wright attack. they chose not to in 2008. if the romney campaign is going to keep going ther

and if they would have known that, they never would have elected him. the efforts to make president obama's race sound like new news and to make it sound shocking are right now ramping up aggressively. last week, for example, here was newt gingrich going all out with it. if you want to make a racial reference bingo card from the '70s, the terms are basketball, performer, the word rhythm, and you'll want a special box for references to the president as sleepy or lazy. >> i'm assuming that some rhythm to barack obama that the rest of us don't understand. whether he needs large amounts of rest, whether he needs to go play basketball for awhile. i don't watch espn. i don't know what his rhythms are, but this is a guy who is a brilliant performer who may well get reelected at the present date. and who frankly happens to be a partial part-time president. he really is like e the substitute referees in the sense that he's not a real president. he doesn't do things presidents do. he doesn't worry about things presidents do. but he has the white house. he has enormous power. he'll go down in history as pr
